Template:Anb Estimated resident population for March 31 2005 by Statistics New Zealand (http://www.stats.govt.nz/popn-monitor/current-popn/current-pop-graph-detail.htm)
Template:Anb Includes Taiwan, Pescadores, Quemoy and Matsu, which are claimed by the People's Republic of China
Template:Anb In addition, there are about 187,000 Israeli settlers in the West Bank and fewer than 177,000 in East Jerusalem; estimate for July 2004 by the United States Central Intelligence Agency's The World Factbook [64] (http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/)
Template:Anb Estimates for this country take into account the effects of excess mortality due to AIDS; this can result in lower life expectancy, higher infant mortality and death rates, lower population growth rates, and changes in the distribution of population by age and sex than would otherwise be expected
Template:Anb Brazil took a count in August 2000, which reported a population of 169,799,170; that figure was about 3.3% lower than projections by the US Census Bureau, and is close to the implied underenumeration of 4.6% for the 1991 census
Template:Anb Includes 5,576,076 non-nationals
Template:Anb Since the outbreak of hostilities between the government and armed Tamil separatists in the mid-1980s, several hundred thousand Tamil civilians have fled the island; as of yearend 2000, approximately 65,000 were housed in 131 refugee camps in south India, another 40,000 lived outside the Indian camps, and more than 200,000 Tamils have sought refuge in the West
Template:Anb The 1997 Mozambican census reported a population of 16,099,246
Template:Anb In addition, about 40,000 people live in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights - 20,000 Arabs (18,000 Druze and 2,000 Alawites) and about 20,000 Israeli settlers
Template:Anb This estimate was derived from an official census taken in 1975 by the Somali Government; population counting in Somalia is complicated by the large number of nomads and by refugee movements in response to famine and clan warfare
Template:Anb Includes about 187,000 Israeli settlers in the West Bank, about 20,000 in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, more than 5,000 in the Gaza Strip, and fewer than 177,000 in East Jerusalem
Template:Anb Includes 166,510 non-nationals
Template:Anb Includes 577,293 non-nationals
Template:Anb Includes an estimated 1,606,079 non-nationals; the 17 December 1995 census presents a total population figure of 2,377,453, and there are estimates of 3.44 million for 2002
Template:Anb Includes 1,291,354 non-nationals
Template:Anb Other estimates range as low as 810,000
Template:Anb In addition, there are more than 5,000 Israeli settlers in the Gaza Strip
